SIFA: Orange Stripe Woven Storage Basket - Large

£38.35 £59.00
Size: Large

 Introduce some Kenyan charm and texture to your interiors with these SIFA baskets, sporting bold, orange stripes on a creamy white base. Hand woven from local sisal grass by a skilled craftswoman working within a small cooperative in rural Kenya, these striped baskets come in three different sizes for use all over the home. They make fabulous storage for household bits and bobs and can be used as both small and large planters for your house plants. 

The craftswomen behind these SIFA woven baskets learned the age-old art of weaving from their mothers and grandmothers, and they work within a small, rural weaving cooperative. Once upon a time these weavers would travel regularly to Nairobi to sell their woven baskets, but The Basket Room now provides them with regular work. Completed baskets are then stored in purpose-built mud huts before being shipped to the basket room. As demand increases, the cooperative continues to thrive and grow under the guidance of its charismatic Chairlady, Madam Dorcas Ndinda.
